Barbara Pierce Bush Supports Planned Parenthood
The Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas has announced that Barbara Pierce Bush is going to be the keynote speaker for the 2017 Annual Luncheon according to Planned Parenthood’s website.
Former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara Pierce Bush, is the CEO and co-founder of Global Health Corps. In the Mission & Vision section of the GHC website it states that “We believe that every person has the right to live a healthy, dignified life.”
The President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards, and Barbara Pierce Bush have a mutual connection – Hillary Clinton.
One of the main connections Richards and Bush have is Hillary Clinton.
Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry endorsed Clinton in her bid for the White House in 2016. Clinton said unborn babies have no constitutional rights and that, if elected president, she would work to have the Hyde Amendment repealed so that taxpayer funds could be used for abortions – an outcome that would have been an obvious boost for the abortion business.
GHC provides opportunities for young people to “work on the frontlines of the fight for global health equity” and offers paid fellowships for them with various “placement” organizations, among them Planned Parenthood Global. Additionally, GHC has provided “placements” at the Clinton Development Initiative, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and the Clinton Health Matters Initiative – all of which are part of the Clinton Foundation
The Bush family supporting Planned Parenthood is nothing new. Barbara Pierce Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was an active supporter of Planned Parenthood in its early days.
From Mother Jones:
During the 1940s, when contraception was a controversial and largely taboo topic, Jeb Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was an active supporter of Planned Parenthood, which was founded by Margaret Sanger in 1921 as the American Birth Control League. In 1947, Bush served as treasurer of the group’s first national fundraising campaign—a move he would soon come to regret. In 1950, Prescott Bush narrowly lost an election for a US Senate seat in Connecticut after a columnist revealed his connection to the “Birth Control Society.” (He went on to win a Senate seat two years later.)
